Manchin Rides Cardinal Train To Montgomery Amtrak Station Ribbon Cutting

Montgomery, WV – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) rode the Cardinal Train from Charleston to Montgomery for the Montgomery Amtrak Station ribbon cutting ceremony following a $1.8 million remodel to ensure the platform is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

“I was honored to ride the Cardinal train from Charleston to Montgomery today to celebrate the renovations made at the Amtrak station. The impact of Amtrak in our state cannot be understated. For generations, Amtrak has provided safe, reliable and affordable travel. In rural parts of our state – and most of our state is rural – Amtrak provides a vital transportation service. Today’s investment is evidence of Amtrak’s continued commitment to serving each and every West Virginian. I applaud this effort and promise you I will continue to do my part in Washington to protect the Cardinal line and ensure it is accessible for everyone for many years to come,” said Senator Manchin.
